Hello Wikiproject, was wondering if anyone could take a look at Beachbody. The article recently saw the addition of content that seems promotional in nature and it is my instinct to cut a lot of the stuff that describes their various programs, etc. The article has, in the past, seen some aggressive editing to add promotional content. I don't think the article is on many people's watchlists. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:19, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Article Request[edit]

Hello Wikiproject: I am a copywriter for a healthcare company. We are a national franchisor that provides accessibility and mobility solutions, such as stair lifts, wheelchair lifts, elevators, auto lifts, etc. We are a resource for products and services for those aging in place and those with mobility challenges and disabilities.

I have put in a request for an article to be written about our company here. Could a Wikipedia expert check out the request and the company, and work on creating an article?

Hello Ledavenport! Thanks for posting on the requested articles page. Since Wikipedia is a community of volunteers, I anticipate that no one will make this article based on the historical precedent of most articles in that list being in queue for years.
I also regret to say that there is no recommended channel for your organization to get an article made, except to have your staff or volunteers encouraged by your staff to join the Wikimedia community as volunteers, contribute to articles in your field of expertise but which are not promotional, and when the time comes, make some decision about an article on your company. If you have staff who wish to do this please say hello at WikiProject Medicine, where the community might be better equipped to support you than here at the Health and fitness project. There are just more people dealing with these sorts of relationship there. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 13:48, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Quint Studer RfC[edit]

Hi there. I'm seeking input on a Request for Comment I've started on the Quint Studer article. I thought editors here might be interested since Studer has worked in the healthcare field for many years and is most well-known for his healthcare consulting group, the Studer Group. The RfC specifically focuses on Studer's career and whether a draft I'm proposing could work as a replacement for that section. Quick disclosure: I have proposed the draft as a paid consultant to the Studer Group, so I do have a COI, which should be taken into account. Thanks, 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 15:47, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
